Re: Probing not responding 6040 CNC mach3

Are you using a USB controller? For some, the digitize light comes on as normal but probe commands in GCode behave erratically.

Re: Cannot get to run on ubuntu 18.04 java 8 or 11

Thanks. I compiled it with an earlier version of java: java -version java version "1.8.0_171" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_171-b11) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.171-b11, mixed mode, sharing) so maybe theres something incompatible with the two java 8 versions and is why recomp...

Re: Regenerate toolpath or not?

Sorry for the late reply. I am not too familiar with Mach3 but I presume "regenerate toolpath" is a Mach3 option and not AL? If you have generated a RPF, loaded it into AL and generated another autolevelled gcode file (i.e. the 2-stage levelling method) which I presume you have, then the toolpaths w...

Re: How to specify probe block height?

Hi, Autoleveller was never designed to use a Z offset like this, it is assumed that you are probing the surface directly with nothing in between. If you are probing a non-conductive surface like wood with only an electrical type probe, try covering the wood in water and a thin piece of tin foil to c...

Re: Autoleveller AE 2 stage levelling question

Just thinking, the problem could be that the RPF has not been loaded into Autoleveller correctly when you generate your levelled file. This would certainly cause the machine to level from the start again. See the 2-stage levelling section here: http://www.autoleveller.co.uk/autoleveller-ae-quick-sta...

Re: Autoleveller AE 2 stage levelling question

Hi and welcome :D OK I think I know what you mean but I could be wrong. In the adjusted file, it will go to the bottom left corner and probe just once. This is because your machine still needs to know where Z 0 is for the first probe point even in the adjusted file, so that your probe mesh can be ap...

Re: G92 codes not being generated in PFG file

Sure. Thats a point worth noting actually. If someone else runs into similar issues with a USB control board, it might be worth using an ethernet or parallel port board instead. If possible.

Re: G92 codes not being generated in PFG file

Yes sorry you are correct. Was in a rush before and got a bit confused with what GCode does what. Yes, the G92's are for zeroing only and should only appear at the start. This is so the rest of the probe commands (G31's) have 1 zeroed point to relate to. Here is an example of a PFG which I quickly g...

Re: G92 codes not being generated in PFG file

Will check it out when Jetbrains gets back to me in a few days time hopefully, but im guessing right now that G92 should appear after the M2002 as you say. In the meantime you could try changing G92 to something else just to see if it comes up in the PFG. The other point is almost certainly a USB on...
